The BET Awards are back and in a major way.
Because the ceremony will be one of the first to welcome back live audiences.
Full story below…
Organizers for the culture’s biggest night announced that the show would take place Sunday June 27 live from the Microsoft Theater.
With last year seeing the consistent ratings performer become the first award show to proceed amid the pandemic, this year sees the trailblazing continue.
For, the BET Awards will feature a live audience comprised of vaccinated individuals.
Those wanting a chance to attend the COVID-safe ceremony can register from May 27.
BET President Scott Mills said in a statement
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, BET has been at the forefront of recovery efforts for our community, turning entertainment touchpoints into opportunities to empower our audiences and help combat the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19. Vaccination rates among Black Americans are significantly lower than other communities. We are committed to using our signature programming event – The BET Awards – to encourage vaccination in our community.”
We’re all sorts of buzzed for this year’s BET Awards. Like the postman, the show always delivers!
